Google Art Project adds 100 new galleries, including the Art Gallery of Ontario
Google announced today that its Google Art Project has begun phase two of its rollout, which means 100 new galleries have been added, including the Art Gallery of Ontario. Online visitors can take 360-degree tours of the participating museums, curate online collections and zoom in on super-high-resolution images to a point where they can see the brushstrokes. (As exciting as this news is, unless you use Google Chrome as your primary browser, it may be difficult to actually find the Art Gallery of Ontario, because the service won’t completely load in Safari, requires a plug-in if you’re using Internet Explorer and, for some reason, redirects you to every other museum in Firefox—your mileage may vary.) Basically, you could be like these guys, but from home.
